Nursery Tour

Well, my due date is officially almost here....less than two weeks away..or for you numbers people, 12 days to be exact. Superbowl Sunday as a matter of fact. Really though it could be any day now. My last day of work was last Friday (at my company you are off starting 2 weeks before your due date) and now I feel like I'm just in a holding pattern of waiting to see what happens every day. Every day I want the house to be in a good place for coming home from the hospital to....and that included putting the final touches on the nursery...

Wanna see???
Here is the view from the door..we had a color scheme of grey/purple & white with a few greens thrown in... I love how soft and pretty and relaxing it turned out :)

I've mentioned this before but I'm just not the biggest fan of gliders...I really wanted a rocker and when I saw this one I loved that it looked just like a regular piece of furniture....it is soooo comfy and we paired it with a grey pouf instead of the ottoman that matched it for a little variety and to save some floor space.

We chose a plain white dresser instead of a a changing table and installed a changer on top of it. It screws into the back and then we added a rug pad underneath it to keep it from sliding around. The drawers are nice and big with plenty of room to grow into.

At some point I plan to put a bookshelf lower to the ground so she can reach her own books, but for now I love the way these cute little owl bookends are displaying all of her baby classics on the shelf. 

I wanted this corner to have more color so we added these fun purple globes above the chair. The empty frame will have the first initial of her name in it in purple once we are ready to reveal what it is :)

The crib is very simple with some fun bedding and a white crib skirt.

And I love the art hanging above it. I'm hoping the colors help to tie the different purples and greens together :)

My friend's mom made us this adorable bow holder that also functions as nursery decor. Seriously, how cute is this?

We plan to cloth diaper eventually (once she fits into her one size fits all bum geniuses) but for now we were lucky enough to get some awesome diaper cakes full of diapers that we will be using until we are ready to commit to the cloth.

Alright baby girl.... I think it's sufficient to say we are ready for you! Your bags are packed.......You can come anytime now!

So what do you think? It's been so fun to put together!

We've since added the lower bookshelves. Click here to see how they turned out.

The colors of the walls in the house give the finishing touch to the house. It is nice to decorate the rooms for the babies.http://nepaltourism.org/skydiving-in-nepal/
